I saw that the very first White Walker was created by a Child of the Forrest. There after, I've only seen it implied that White Walkers are created from Craster's sons.

Is there some kind of magical connection between the White Walkers and Craster? Now that Craster is dead, there are no more boys being groomed to become White Walkers. Or, anyone that is alive can be changed into a White Walker?

Is it valid to ask if wildings are more afraid of becoming a wight or a White Walker?

    White Walkers presumably existed long before Craster was born.. – Andrew Thompson Jun 17 '16 at 3:10

    Nitpick, the boys weren't groomed. They were always supposed to be taken right after birth. Grooming implies training or something. – cde Jun 17 '16 at 5:23

There is definitely one son of Craster who became a White Walker. Craster's Last Son was given to the White Walkers in Season 4 Episode 4 and, when touched by the Night's King acquired the deep blue eyes of the Others. While this was probably the fate of his other sons that is not certain.

Beyond the fact that he sacrificed his sons to them and at least one became a White Walker? Not known.

Now that Craster is dead, there are no more boys being groomed to become White Walkers.

I think this is too long a bow to draw. The White Walkers have been in existence for thousands of years; whether they are immortal or needed to procreate during that time is not known. There may have been and still might be others like Craster who sacrifice their sons to preserve their own lives.

Or, anyone that is alive can be changed into a White Walker?

Who knows?

Of course it's valid to ask. I don't know the answer.

    This seems like a bullet point list of "I don't know the answer." I suggest checking out the Tour to get a better idea of how to ask and answer questions. – Meat Trademark Jun 17 '16 at 3:48

    @MeatTrademark the OP is asking about things that haven't happened. "I don't know" is the only answer right now. – kuhl Jun 17 '16 at 11:12

    @MeatTrademark Sometimes 'It's not possible' is a valid answer on sites like SO or SU, so 'We don't know' is just as valid on here. – Insane Jun 17 '16 at 13:49
